This Wednesday is exactly two months since Virgil van Dijk had his right knee operated on and little by little he is posting hopeful images to his social media.
Through Instagram, Liverpool’s centre-back shows his progress as he grinds in the gym to return.
The infamous Everton-Liverpool derby, in which Virgil van Dijk suffered a torn ligament in his right knee, will remain a bad memory. He is expected to be fit in May, although there is still a lot to do, despite his efforts.
The Dutchman was operated on 30 October, just two months ago, and in early December he was seen starting training in the gym. Hopeful images for Liverpool.
Through his social networks, Van Dijk shares photos and videos of how this whole recovery process is going, which is still at an early stage. It is clear how he is pushing to be back as soon as possible.
A few days ago, you could see him tapping a ball with the message “step by step”. Van Dijk is walking normally and gradually making more effort to strengthen the joint.
The latest video shows the defender on the exercise bike sweating his way through the game. We’ll have to see if he makes it for the last stretch of the season. At the beginning, it was estimated that he would be out for half a year.
